steve boylen, joins us from kansas city. appreciate you being with us. is there a connection between benghazi and the sex scandal? >> no, geraldo. there isn't. good to talk with you again, unfortunately under these circumstances, but in my initial contact with david petraeus, he informed me that there was no connection whatsoever between what happened with his affair which ended about four months ago, by the way, and the white house which he had a great working relationship and benghazi or anything else, for that matter. he told me that it was a poor judgment, bad decision, and just a lacook of discipline on his part, that he deeply regrets for many, many reasons. many of them start with his family, how much he's hurt them, losing the job that he felt that he loved more than anything else as far as his professional side right now, a great job, and working with a great group of people at the cia. >> when did the affair start? did it start as has been reported in afghanistan when she was interviewing him there for her variousf reports? >> no. those are inaccurate reports, at least base

of the august 15th cable where he was steve s said we can't stand a coordinated attack. i blame the president for making this a death trap. i blame the president for not having assets available to help these people for eight hours. we need a select committee not only to look at intelligence failures but how could the department of defense not help these poor people over eight hours. >> mike, you heard senator graham there. what's the administration's reaction to this? >> a lot of strong views. it is an issue that is not going away, especially after david petraeus, the former director of the cia testified in a closed door hearing on friday. senators, congressmen from both sides of the aisle came out. little doubt general petraeus thought almost immediately after the september 11th attacks that it resulted in the deaths of ambassador stevens and three other americans that it was terrorists involved here and it was not a spahn teenagerous event. and of course most notely a narrative was put forward by susan rice some five days after the attacks on "meet the press" and elsewhere. you heard lindse
the conversation now, former treasury official and "morning joe" economic analyst, steve rattner, good morning. >> good morning. >> we'll get to your charts. also mike allen from the "politico" newsroom, the chief white house correspondent there. good morning. >> i hate being objectified like you guys. >> see, you're in the deutsche camp. let's talk about what mitt romney said in that conference call this week. he was talking to his biggest donors, defending his campaign by saying president obama won because he focused on giving, quote, gifts to latinos, african-americans and younger voters. >> what the president -- president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote. >> mr. romney went on to say the president wooed hispanic voters with free health care and, quote, amnesty for children of illegal immigrants. as for voters in htheir 20s, romney said, quote, with regards to the young people, for instance, a forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gi
, kelly, this is steve kornacki. part of this story, then, involves the potential nomination of susan rice, the u.n. amambassador, to replace hillary clinton at the state democratic. it's susan rice who a lot of republicans have decided lied to the public. they allege was executing some kind of intentional cover-up plot by the administration. i don't know how that would work or what the cover-up would be. be that as it may, that's what republicans are saying. you have john mccain and lindsey graham both saying if her nomination is put forward, they will filibuster it. are there any indications that that would become an official republican party position, because if the republicans unite, they would have the 40 votes to kill it by filibuster. >> there is a lot of opposition among republicans to a potential susan rice nomination. people are not actively talking about filibuster, although that's the obvious presumption if you talk about members trying to block something like this. in some was they are saying that she was schoezen bied white house to be the public face in the early days after
the benghazi consulate attack. however, that's 180 degree about-face from what he said before. nbc's own steve handelsman has more. >> reporter: larry, thanks. good evening. general petraeus got a warm welcome up here on capitol hill from lawmakers clearly sorry to see him go. the former cia director testified the u.s. intelligence knew islamic militants were a threat in benghazi and specified soon after the september 11th attack in so-called talking points to be used with the public that al qaeda-type organizations were responsible for the attack. but as those talking points made the rounds of other national security organizations here in washington, the word al qaeda got changed to "extremists." and when the points got to u.n. ambassador susan rice, she made no mention of al qaeda or extremists when she went on nbc's "meet the press" five days after the attack. rice did tout the anti-terrorist accomplishments of president obama. pet rae ugs denies any political pressure on the cia to scrub al qaeda from its talking points. new york republican peter king said today, "we need to find out who d

position against federal spending programs. he kicked off his programs for $68 billion in cuts. steve centanni live in washington. tell us about this report, what is in it. >> the report on spending in the department of defense is called the department of everything, and recommends specific cuts over ten years in five main areas of concern. the report says in part, these areas are merely a starting point for reviewing pentagon spending that is unnecessary, duplicative, wasteful or simply not related to defense. we must refocus the pentagon on its true mission, fighting and winning the nation's wars. the report highlights waste in dozens of specific programs, they include research on what fish can teach us about democracy, a study of jargon used on twitter and how it differs across the country. a reality cooking show featuring grill sergeants. a so-called starship project that included a discussion involving klingons. the fact that of babies interacting with robots. and operating 254 grocery stores worldwide. jon: there also was criticism of knee newable energy projects. >> reporter: t
